La maison du passeur, yesterday and today

La maison du passeur, yesterday and today

La Maison du Passeur (the ferryman’s house) dates back 1580 at least. At this period, it was an inn. In 1613, Balthazar Breton of Villandry – lord of Savonnières castellany – bought the inn in order to establish his Justice Court on the first floor, leaving the café on the ground floor.

The Justice Court was dissolved in 1790 but the inn remained. The owner got the rent of the ferryboat in 1850, but the opening of the first suspension bridge of Savonnières put an end to the ferryman and boat, two years later.

The café of the Ferryman’s House remained until the early 20th century.

Nowadays, Brossard Traiteur settles in The Ferryman’s House to create a restaurant and living place where you can taste delicate food, have a break on your trip along the Loire à Vélo (Loire by Bike), spend an evening with friends or family…
